Tonight I have a card I whipped together for my monday challenge group on Splitcoaststampers. This week the challenge was one we received by mail from my friend, Charlene. Charlene sent us two squares of double sided designer paper, a thank you charm, a polkadotted button, three punched stars and some ribbon....our challenge was to create a pocket card using all of the items. (We had a choice of using the button or the punched stars in case any of you challenge police analyze this!)
The final part of the challenge was to send it to one of the ladies on SCS that hosts the daily challenges or creates tutorials. My card is going to Beate Johns, who has created I have no idea how many tutorials on that site. Thank you, Beate, for all of the inspiration and creations you provide for so many of us! You are truly an inspiration!
I created this super easy pocket card--easy, because there is very little stamping. I was so perplexed about what to do with all of these patterns on this paper so--I really focused on the paper for the design. After creating the pocket, I used the patterned paper to cover it and I cut one of the flowers out of the flower pattern and I stitched the thank you charm to it and adhered it to the front of the pocket. I used my SU tab punch to create the tab for the pull out card and I stitched the button (reverse side up because the polkadots were freaking me out a bit with all the other patterns going on!). I think I managed to make it all work but it was a challenge for me for sure!
Materials used: sentiment (SU!) Warmest Regards; SU! tab punch; button; thread; ribbon (SU!); thank you charm; cardstock (night of navy, whisper white, patterned dp); ink (going gray); corner rounder punch (Creative Memories)
All this on very little sleep as my two littlest ones slept in between my husband and I at my inlaws this weekend..makes for a great night sleep!
Have a great monday!
